City of Montreal can't even spell the names of their own streets correctly
Our photo journalist Martin C. Barry snapped this picture at the corner of Rosedale Ave. and Terrebonne Avenue on Monday, February 23. He checked other intersections of the street. It appears to be the only one where they made a mistake.
Journalists, more than anyone, probably know how easy it is for a spelling error to occur and find its way in the final print version of an article, causing eternal shame and frustration to the person who is unfortunate enough to have their name attached to the byline.
But how does a blatant mistake like this happen and why was it not caught in time? How did no one from the City of Montreal Public Works department (the CDN-NDG borough included) catch the spelling mistake? One assumes there was ample time between the printing and the installation of the sign for someone to say "Wait a minute! That's not how Rosedale Avenue is spelled!" Let's see how long it takes for this sign to come down now that the gaffe has been exposed.
